Other than Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, today will probably be the party day of December. From office parties to the local watering holes, the rowdies will be at large and that's fine with me. The office parties that linger, then filter into the happy hour crowd are usually the most fun.
This is the day when the mild and the meek, mostly rare drinkers, put on their party hats and let their hair down. This normally leads to some really bad karaoke performances that are hysterical. Groups of three, four and five potential singers, most of whom have never held a microphone in their lives, sing their favorite songs to the shrills and shrieks of fellow employees.
Although most of the players in AREA 51 are not prone to overly party with the amateurs, we do enjoy observing them. By the end of the afternoon or early evening, most of the revelers morph back into pumpkins and usually try to find the most sober in the group to take them home. Of course, occasionally, a stray minnowette will leave the swirling school and wander into AREA 51 and, as gentlemen, we give them an honorary membership for the evening.
The Pictures: Nostalgia was the inclination that inspired today's photographs. I know most of you don't remember all of these stars of yesterday, but fear not my little popcorn munchers, this isn't the test. The real test is picture number 6, one the first scary movies I ever saw. Name the movie and the way in which it was viewed. You'll get extra credit if you can name the sexy little starlet in the bathing suit ( and no, it's not Honey). So, put on your rosed colored glasses and go to work.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: From my pal, Anne, a Christmas story that only the likes of she and I, and you , my little chipmunks, might enjoy.
A man goes into his dentist's office as something is wrong with his mouth. After a brief examination the dentist exclaimed, "Holy Smoke!!! That plate I installed in your mouth about six months ago has nearly completely corroded. What on earth have you been eating?"
The man replied, "Well the only thing that I can think of is this...My wife made me some asparagus about four months ago with this stuff on it. Hollandaise Sauce, she called it. And, Doctor, I'm talking delicious. I've never tasted anything like it. And ever since I've been putting it on everything--meat, fish, toast, vegetables, you name it."
The dentist responded, "That's probably it. Hollandaise sauce is made with lemon juice, which is acidic and highly corrosive. I'll have to install a new plate, but this time I'll make it out of chrome."
The man asked,"Why chrome?" The dentist replied , "Well, everyone knows there's no plate like chrome for the Hollandaise."
That's it for today my little sugar plums. Have a safe and great weekend and more on Christmas Eve.
